What’s the difference between dental veneers and dental bonding?
Dental veneers are typically made from porcelain, are professionally crafted in a dental laboratory, and are applied to the surface of the teeth once complete. They are strong, stain-resistant, and look very natural. On the other hand, dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured composite material is applied directly to teeth before being hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. This can be used for minor repairs such as chipped teeth or to fill small unwanted gaps.
How are dental veneers and bonding applied?
Dental veneers typically require two visits to our office - on the first visit, we’ll take a mold of your teeth, select the correct colour and shape (based on what you have requested), and send it off to a laboratory. Once the veneers are ready, your second visit will be used to bond them permanently in place.
Dental bonding is a one-time appointment and can usually be completed within one hour. The tooth-coloured resin material is applied directly to the teeth and is then hardened with an ultraviolet light. It can also be shaped to fix chips, close gaps, and even change the shape of teeth.
What are the benefits of veneers and bonding?
Veneers and bonding offer a number of cosmetic benefits that can enhance your smile, such as:
- Updating the shape, colour, or size of teeth
- Reshaping tooth enamel to cover cracks or chips
- Closing unwanted gaps between teeth
- Whitening stained, yellowed, or discoloured teeth
- Making teeth look more even and symmetrical.
Is everyone a candidate for these treatments?
Most healthy adults can undergo dental veneers or bonding treatment but it's important to note that patients should have healthy teeth and gums, and that any decay or gum disease issues must be addressed prior to treatment. Rest assured that our team will evaluate your dental health, take x-rays and discuss your goals before making any decisions about cosmetic dentistry.
